Hello my Lovelies and Gents,
So how was your day? Mine was good. I was sore though. Pushed it extra hard in class last night. So hard that I avoided the exercise ball. I did not feel like I had quick enough reflexes to catch myself if I started to fall. I was beat. I was tired. I had planned on walking at lunch, but quite frankly I could barely keep my head up.
I did end up sitting outside with Ms. Barb discussing food. Some of it was nutritious and some of it was just plain gross.
Ms. Barb: Ewww I don't know how you can eat just plain carrots. *insert icky face*
Me: Don't tell me, you would dip them in ketchup?
Ms. Barb: Speaking of, I was eating my sliced cheese with ketchup the other night....
I can't eat with her any more. haha.
I was nice and awake when I was outside for lunch, but as soon as I walked back inside I was ready for bed...but alas, I still had half a day to go. Good news! I made it! 5 o'clock came and I had not passed out.
So 5'oclock came and it was time to head to the gym. It is weird to go on a Wednesday. It's been my Day of Rest for so long because of Church obligations. I need to adjust to my Summer Schedule.
I love the Phillies, but there are times when I wish they would have road trips for months at a time. Every home game means you can just add 15-30 minutes to my drive home. This is a good time to switch up my workouts.
I will try to hit my old park at least once a week. I just have to plan ahead on those days. I will need to bring extra water bottles and dress appropriately...or change at work before I leave. I can also hit up the other gym location that's closer on the way home from work. I tend to not go there on the off chance that I would see one of the gym crushes at my gym. I know, I have issues. haha.
With the traffic I get to the gym a little later. Luckily I am in no hurry to get home in time for a tv show to come on. I don't have DVR and quite frankly I don't think I'd ever leave the house if I did. I was a slave to the TV for sooooo many years. I was the queen of setting the vcr timer.
Tonight I didn't get on to the treadmill until 6:20. The plan was for 90 minutes. Normally I would freak out about how late I would be at the gym. I do not like to eat after 8pm and this is a hard rule of mine. I would then think about needing to shower. Worrying about finding a parking space. Packing my lunch. Packing my gym bag. Writing the blog. Making it home in time to watch my show.
I didn't worry about that tonight. Instead I just relaxed at the thought that it's summer and I can just enjoy my time. I put in my 90 minutes and I was sweaty! I came home and made my lunch while my whole wheat pasta cooked.
I love my tv shows, but it is extremely freeing not being a slave to them. I can almost enjoy the rush hour traffic thinking about that.
